Jay-Hova’s Witness
by Serena Kim

4894 So much going on in the world of Jay-Z. Entertainment Weekly's cover story gives up the goods on his upcoming album, Kingdom Come. And, big ups to Jigga Man for his executive production work on Lupe Fiasco’s debut, Food and Liquor. I heard it and it is indeed, the heat. Even better than the leaked advance. But between you and me, Jay-Z’s “Warhols and Miro’s” references were no match for Lupe’s crazy clever clothing metaphors on “Pressure”—definitely a joint for people who like to hear falcon squeals on rap anthems. But a little lyrical one-upmanship is nothing to a man who was just named as one of Vanity Fair magazine’s “New Establishment” power list, coming in at No. 46.
